Orphan Drug Designations as Valuable Intangible Assets for IPO Investors in Pharma-Biotech Companies. -- by Philippe Gorry, Diego Useche

Orphan Drug (OD) legislation has been implemented with regulatory and financial incentives to encourage drug innovation in order to treat rare diseases. This study aims to test whether OD Designations (ODD) granted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to pharmaceutical and biotechnology start-up companies may be considered as relevant signals in attracting entrepreneurial finance and increasing the amount invested at the time of the Initial Public Offering (IPO) in the US stock markets. We found that the signaling power of ODD is positively and statistically significant for IPO investors in stock markets. Regression results also suggest that ODDs are stronger than patent applications in attracting IPO investors. Scholarly and policy implications are discussed in the light of the signaling theory and drug development policies.

[GGP] Legal Issues Related to the Application of the Gas Directive to Gas Pipelines between the EU and Third Countries

The EU gas directive in force regulates issues pertaining to the transmission of gas from third countries to the Union but is ambiguous. It can be interpreted in such a way that gas pipelines from these countries are not covered by EU energy regulations, leaving room for abuse. From the point of view of both Poland and the whole Union, it would be desirable to change the directive so that it clearly applies to EU legislation regarding gas pipelines used for the import of gas into the Union.
